A Post For Networkers

If you know me personally, you may know that I pass along a lot of books to my circle of friends and business associates. The funny thing is that the more books I pass to my friends, the more books I receive!

Before I continue, I just want to thank Chow Boon, for giving me a copy of the book – Masters of Networking, This book is a collection of many popular networking related articles by some of the famous Authors around the world like Mark Victor Hansen, Bill Gates, Jay Conrad Levinson, Bob Burg and many more! I strongly encourage everyone to read this book especially if you are finding a book about networking. This book is a great resource as it sums up most materials out there =)

I am happy to read Chow Boon’s article in this book as well when I received it =) From Chow Boon’s article, you will realise that how important it is to be involved in a structured networking event to generate business activities.

One of my favorite sections is the Discovering Your Networking Style, written by Lilian D. Bjorseth. I found out from this section that I am actually a Supportive Networker! This section comes with some easy-to-do assessment that you can learn more about your networking styles =)

My other favorite section is the Top 10 Networking Traits by Elizabeth L. Misner and Ivan R. Misner. You may be surprised that the top five most important characteristics are:

  • Follow up on referrals
  • Positive attitude
  • Enthusiastic
  • Trustworthy
  • Good listener

I have also managed to pull out a YouTube video featuring Dr. Ivan Misner (Founder of BNI) elaborating on the top ten traits. Enjoy the video!

And thanks to Chow Boon again for the book!
